The Raveonettes Premiere New Video

Getting ready for the release of their new album "Observator" - out September 11th - The Raveonettes have released the video for first single "She Owns The Streets." Noisey on Youtube, the music channel from the makers of VICE, is currently premiering the video.

Inspired by their surroundings, The Raveonettes have always been able to capture the experiences and emotions of every day life. "She Owns The Streets for example is about a New York City street dancer named Loan who actually is the star of this video," says songwriter Sune Rose Wagner. "I've noticed her before dancing wildly on Bowery, running crazily in the street among the cabs and horrified passers-by. A friend of mine introduced me to her and we struck up a friendship. In 20 minutes I had written a song about the pleasures and pitfalls of being perceived as either a drug-crazed girl or an insane individual, simply because she dares to defy the laws of civility and conformity."
